Hi! I looked at your site and found Mary Dyess and Willis Dear's daughter, Emily,who married John Dyess (of the Christopher Dyess line). However, I have yet to find my Mary Dyess. I am somehow though leaning toward her being connected to Christopher as maybe his sibling. Tough I have been told there have been no listing for any females from his parents. But I did notice on your site that you have a Fortenberry line. Catherine Fidelia Fortenberry married to Henry Tarver. Henry Tarver was the s/o my 4th great uncle, Christopher Columbus Tarver who married Priscilla Castellaw, d/o Jenny Penny Dear who was the d/o Mary Dyess and Willis Dear and my 4th great aunt (by blood and by marriage). It seems each of these families all came toward Texas (Brown, Castellaw, Courtney and tarver)from Lawrence Co., MS/Simpson Co., MS at about the same time (1850's)and all settled close together again. It was so popular to marry cousins at that time that I truly believe the Christopher Dyess line via his parents connects with my Mary. Do you have any suggestions or perhaps anyone who might can lead me in a good direction about this?

I appreciate any help you can give me.

thank you,

Pam Caldwell
